Amusing Ourselves to Death 

More than two decades ago, Neil Postman wrote a book in which he argued that television (among other sources of media) has tainted our ability to engage important issues seriously because of our demand for constant entertainment. The impact of the truths he uncovered is seen in today's churches and schools for sure. However, until recently, there were still some places where we could escape the barrage of sounds and images posing as entertainment. One of those sanctuaries is now under attack:

According to an MSNBC article, "Next month, a company called Atech Flash Technology will release the iCarta, designed to let users listen to music while in the bathroom and features a toilet-paper holder."

At first I thought this was one of those spoof things, but it appears to be a legitimate product.
